How have the Chinese fared in America? What motivated them to
come here in the nineteenth century? How were they received by
native Americans? These are some of the questions that Henry Tsai
deals with in this important new book. He treats the
nineteenth-century immigration experience, the development of early
Chinese communities, American exclusion and the difficulties of
living in the shadow of exclusion, and the Chinese community in the
post-World War II era and today. Also covered are Chinese women in
conemporary American society, the problems with children and youth
in a multiracial society, and international issues such as the
relationships between the U.S., China, and Taiwan, and the
implications of these issues for the Chinese in America. The work
provides a solid statistical analysis in a way that will be
accessible to students and scholars as well as general readers.
